How to delete LUNs and meta members in VMAX-1

Hi All, I'm trying to reclaim LUNs for decommed servers/Applications. I was collectd LUNs details, Masking View details. I was removed and unmaped the LUNs and while trying to delete the LUNs I'm getting syntax error stating that "The requested feature is not supported for this microcode or SYMAPI version"

Would some one please tell me the procedures with syntax to reclaim the LUNs and dissolve the Meta members

Its for VMAX-1

narc01adm02# symcli

Symmetrix Command Line Interface (SYMCLI) Version V8.0.2.0 (Edit Level: 2004)

built with SYMAPI Version V8.0.2.0 (Edit Level: 2004)

Re: How to delete LUNs and meta members in VMAX-1

if device is no longer mapped to FAs (meaning you either removed device from storage group or for total reclaim deleted masking view with -unmap),  you need to unbind device from the pool first (symdev show devid will tell you what pool device is bound to)

symconfigure -sid 3925 -cmd "unbind tdev 07E9 from pool MYPOOLNAME;"

wait a little while and then delete device

symdev -sid 3925 delete -dev 07E9
